Don't trust Fox to quote the publisher word for word? How about the NY Times then?

Plenty of sources on this thread saying that she wrote the book and did not use a ghostwriter all coming from the publisher. Pretty hard to dispute.

Even if she did use a ghost writer...it does not matter...it is her story that is important. Yes, I am sure that her entirety of her captivity was not always horrible...but the issue is...she was a captive, and her life was changed because of the actions of that man and woman, to a life that was not her choice or her Mother's choice. I always felt badly for her Stepfather as well, he was suspected of her disappearance for years.

well i still dont believe she could have written that herself that is clearly done by a professional unless her kidnappers where home schooling her from what many of you are saying she only had a 5th grade education some of the words she used are more college level. SOMEONE helped her and her puctuation is PERFECT

She may just be a person who likes to read. My vocabulary and punctuation come mostly from reading books, not from sitting in a classroom. I also know many other people who learned most of their vocabulary from reading. Any time you meet someone who has a good vocabulary, ask them if they like to read. You will most likely hear that they do.
